Police in Israel have come under fire for using heavy-handed tactics while breaking up a that allegedly breached coronavirus lockdown rules. 

Officers were called to a house in the West Bank settlement of Givat Zeev late Wednesday by a neighbour who said the party broke a 20-person gathering limit.

A fight broke out, and video taken in the aftermath shows the bride's brother being taken away in handcuffs while bleeding heavily from his face. 

The footage caused outrage after being posted on social media, especially among Ultra-Orthodox Jews, who accused police of discrimination.

The footage shows the bride's brother was led away by police. Police say when they arrived at the party there were 'dozens' of people milling about, and that organisers were hostile towards them when they tried to shut it down.

The man can be seen, with blood on his face, being guided away in handcuffs by police. Police claimed officers acted in self-defence after guests began throwing glass bottles filled with oil
